---Some bikes mentioned were current when their famous
owners took posession.Making a case for them not being
into classics so much as bicycles.My contribution may
or may not be off topic,too much.
A lad from Austalia named Troy Bayliss is the
reigning superbike world champion in motocycles,
and is an avid road rider(bicycle) as well.This past
year he bought a campy equipped Litespeed,that is
painted up as a Ducati,which is his world champion
mount in motorcycles.
